Yes.  The principal limitation of RuleDispatch compared to a more 
traditional event system is that you can't *remove* subscribers.

However, for many classes of application, listeners tend to be fairly 
static over the run time, so this is only an issue for super-dynamic event 
systems that are constantly rewiring themselves.
